Dawn's babies

A big thank you to Dawn for sharing photographs of her sweet children with us. David departed this life at 14 weeks and was born two weeks later at 16 weeks. Two photographs of him are on the Photographs page and more can be found on his home page (linked there). Hannah Grace was stillborn at 36 weeks. Like David, two photos of her are posted here and more can be found on her home page (linked there).

May David and Hannah Grace's memory be eternal!

I just want to thank all of you who have so generously shared photographs of your sweet little ones gone too soon. You may never know who it is that is helped, comforted or touched by seeing your baby. I receive so many emails from women who have been comforted by seeing these photographs, women who, through one reason or another, never got to see their own lost babies. Thank you, so much. Also, I really appreciate the emails so many of you have sent, asking for prayers, letting me know how Lost Innocents helped you, etc. This can be a difficult project to work on and just a short note means so much more than you know.

Jennifer's baby

Thank you so much to Jennifer and Ernie for sharing photographs of their baby, Journey (a combination of their names). Jennifer was nine weeks when her midwife was unable to find a heartbeat. Almost a week later she delivered the baby, still in the sac and attached to the placenta. While she was almost ten weeks into the pregnancy, Journey had stopped growing at six weeks. The photographs are stunning in their clarity and detail. Much like Sara's baby, Simsim, these photographs will be so helpful to so many women who don't know what to expect and what to look for when miscarrying.

May Journey's memory be eternal!

Sara's Baby

I was surprised when I received an email from a woman on the other side of the world, offering photographs of her very young baby. Sara lost her baby at only approximately five weeks and was able to retrieve the body and photograph it. These photographs are now on our Photographs page through her generosity. They do not show a recognizable baby - it's simply too early - and include the umbilical cord and other tissue, but they are very important photos because the majority of women who miscarry do so at this early stage. It will be helpful for them to have some idea of what to expect. Thank you, Sara, for your generosity, and may your baby's memory be eternal!

Valerie's Baby

I want to thank Valerie for contacting me and generously offering the story and photographs of her Little One who departed this life at 9 weeks, 4 days. There is a photo on the Photographs page and a link to Valerie's miscarriage story/blog on the Your Stories page. Valerie has written an honest and beautiful account of her miscarriage. I'm sure it will prove to be helpful to many.

May the memory of Little One be eternal!!
